Make Ego Great Again II

August 13, 2017

A friend sent this link to a Vedic interpretation of Eclipses…

And then described how their Life has been bothered by bureaucratic snafus recently. 

Where we are Looking has a lot to do with how we Perceive Reality.  Consider the contrast between Looking at the Fear Propaganda on TV in the USofA, or Looking at, for example, or .  Not to imply that the Arcturians have any kind of monopoly on Relevance to what’s happening on the Planet.  You might resonate more to the Pleiadeans or or .

Vedic astrology has a tendency to Believe it does have a monopoly on Truth.  If it provides Perspective that is useful to you, then, as with any Perspective, by all means use it.  The more Lenses we have to see the World through, the closer we are to actually participating in Reality rather than our own Projections.  When any Perspective strikes Fear, though, we need to Tap Out the Fear before we use the Perspective.  If a Perspective is good for nothing more than bringing Unconscious Fear into Consciousness where you can Love it to Death, then it’s a very Powerful Perspective for you.  Alternatively, with a technique like Theta Healing, where the Outcome is immediately available to us, we can modify our Command until we find one that works, or alternate Theta and Tapping.

The root of the monopoly tendency in Vedic astrology is Religious Politics.  Simply put, if it’s Either/Or it’s Political.  If it’s Both/And, it’s Spiritual.  We make no claim that this is an absolute Truth, but we suggest strongly that it’s a very Reliable First Approximation and a very Useful Perspective.  Vedic astrology supported Political Hinduism, as distinct from Esoteric Hinduism.  Political Hinduism supported ongoing Abuse of the Dalit or Harijan caste just as Political Christianity supported ongoing Slavery and Abuse of Primary Cultures everywhere they were encountered.  Certainty is a Tool of Political Agendas.

We look at it this way.  Hinduism is frequently accused of promoting Fatalism, and Political Hinduism certainly appears to.  As with most Religions, I don’t believe that Esoteric Hinduism does promote Fatalism.  Fate and Free Will are usually seen as an Either/Or, so as with any Duality, we Know that this is a 3D Veil attempting to obscure the Both/And, Multifarious and Unitary Reality on the Other Side.

The difference between Fate and Free Will is that our Fate is what befalls us when we’re Captives of the Karmic and Generational and Social Archetypes that we usually refer to as our Limiting Beliefs.  Free Will is what we Obtain when we step outside of the Limited Reality of the these Archetypes.  Even the “Laws” of Physics are simply Archetypes, Projections of the Ego’s need for Stasis and the mind’s need for the Illusion of Understanding.  If you’ve ever had a Wannabe Guru Manifest in your bedroom in a pillar of shimmering colored pinpricks of light like on Star Trek, you’d understand this.  Or Channeled an Antarean, or met a Walk-In, or Encountered one of your Doubles.

To me Growth in Consciousness (which means Freeing yourself from some Archetype), which usually requires an Ego Death of some sort, is not about Discovery, but about Differentiation.  We See or Feel more layers of Reality when we start noticing that there are Trees in the Forest, Trees of different Colors, Trees that have Birds and Bears in them, Birds and Bear that may be different from one another and that eat different Foods, etc etc.  There is no better way to Illuminate an Archetype or Assumption that we’ve wrapped our Limited view of Reality around, than for it suddenly to disappear.

Would we notice if suddenly all the Birch Trees disappeared from the Forest?  We might only notice that something had Changed.  But if they reappeared while we were pondering what it was that Changed, then suddenly our Consciousness would have a whole new Perspective on Birch Trees.  This is precisely what happens during an Eclipse; that which we Assume is Constant blinks off for a short time, then returns to its former Glory.  And we’re talking about the Sun, which Symbolizes our Essence.  Hence we consider Eclipses to be about Illumination, and that’s precisely what they are. 

Remember that in the Unconscious there is no Negation.  When you Pray for No War, you’re most likely to get War, because the Unconscious does not have a No in its vocabulary.  As we usually put it, astrology and the Unconscious determine Dimension, but not Direction.  The Cat may still be Alive or Not.  Eclipse is the Absence of Light, as Fear is the Absence of Love.  The Dimensions in those statements are Light and Love.  The Direction – Absence or Presence – is a Political Decision by the Ego, by yourself.

When you make a Decision to Choose Light and Love rather than Absence on any Issue in your Life, you threaten the Karmic or Family or Cultural Archetype that would keep you in Scarcity, with Fire and Fury like the World has never known.  So guess what the Archetype does in return?  It threatens to surround your Ego with Missiles, while its Ally the Ego warns you to seek cover and “not” to look at the flash.  As if you would have time for anything approaching that.  Ego and Archetype are one and the same. 

Hence we always recommend adding “Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely” to our PIAVAs

PIAVAs directly address the Unconscious.  The Unconscious is in Charge, and one of its “Rules” is that no Prayer goes unanswered – that’s just a Perspective, but we suggest strongly that it’s a Reliable First Approximation and a Useful Perspective.   Use it as a filter to Examine your Life.  Every Negative thought you have is a Prayer.  Every Victim Emotion that you have is a Prayer.  Your Prayers specify the Dimension, and your Negativity and Victimhood specify the Direction.  Thoughts and Emotions are self-reinforcing, and their Negativity and Victimhood reinforce each other.  Your Negative thoughts and Victim Emotions are generated by your Archetypes.

When you PIAVA something and you’re ready to Receive it, the Universe will deliver it, just like Amazon or Taobao.  When you aren’t ready to Receive it, what the Universe will deliver, when you see the Universe through a Benevolent Lens, is Illustration of Why You Haven’t Been Manifesting That All Along.  That often looks like the Opposite of what you Asked for – the same principle as an Eclipse; often the fastest way to get you to Notice something that you’ve been taking for granted, is to Remove it.

There are some things which you have always been Abundant in.  Your Archetypes support your Ego in those arenas.  There are other things that have always been Difficult for you.  Those Define your Self-Sabotaging Archetypes.  Jane Roberts’s (Seth’s) The Nature of Personal Reality is an excellent exposition of this Lens.

Your thoughts and Emotions are not beyond your Control.  Your Ego can Choose to Intervene and Change the Direction.  It may take years of Persistence to shut down a strong Archetype, but never consider it Impossible.  You can PIAVA Assistance in Changing the Direction of the Archetype from Scarcity to Abundance – or vice versa for Abuse, though you’re better off Asking for Respect and Inviolate Boundaries, or whatever it is that you Want, rather than Asking for what you Don’t Want.

In Real Life this is an Either/Or Universe.  Fate is still going on.  If your Fate is to be Rich and Famous and Irresistible, then you may not want to Change it – though “Good” Karma is said to be harder to Change than “Bad” Karma, so when you start to get tired of being Rich and Famous and Irresistible, you may want to PIAVA Choice.  You may want to Choose Rich and Famous and Irresistible on Tuesdays and Fridays, Happy and Private on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and Surprised on Saturdays and Sundays and Mondays – but even that is an Archetype that will be Obsolete soon.

There isn’t much difference between Attention and Intention.  If your Attention is always on Negativity and Scarcity, whether in thought or Emotion, the Unconscious will consider that your Intention, and Manifest it for you.  Your Attention is under your Control.  You may have a nasty Habit of Focusing on your Negative thoughts and Bummer Emotions, and it may take a lot of Work to Change the Habit, but it is doable.  The Key is Noticing and Congratulating.

Rather than beating yourself up when you Notice that you’re Unconsciously indulging your Negativity, Congratulate yourself for Noticing.  You’re substituting Positive Reinforcement for Negative Reinforcement, and the more often you do this, the easier it becomes.  You’ll be surprised at how Effective this simple step is; Congratulate yourself for Noticing that you’re Repeating an undesired Habit, rather than cursing yourself for Repeating the Habit.

This particular Eclipse occurs while Mercury is Retrograde, and the Vedic Eclipse interpretation we linked to at the beginning of this article reads much like the average Western astrology’s interpretation of Mercury Retrograde.  Our approach to Retrogradations is the same as our approach to Eclipses.  But rather than Demanifestation of something routine, a Retrogradation may encourage Obsession on it – not a matter of Dimension, just a matter of Direction, so absolutely available to be Changed by the Ego with PIAVAs and Persistence. 

I usually find Retrogrades to be more Contemplative than Obsessive, but the same Energies apply – Contemplate What you Want, not What you Don’t Want.  If you’re particularly Skilled at Obsession, Obsess on What you Want, not on What you don’t Want.  We’ve already talked about Obsession and Changing the Subject, an important step in PIAVAing

If you can’t shake Negative Energy while you’re trying to Focus on What You Want, Tap it Out.  Be sure to measure the Intensity of the Energy before and after Tapping, and Recognize that you may need to Iterate, and even alternate with other forms of PIAVAing.  Persistence counts.

The dwarf planet that deals with our Unlimited Potential is Chaos, which is in the Air Grand Trine and Dynamic Grand Sextile of the recent Full Moon; see the previous post.  It’s joined in the Grand Trine by Haumea/Rebirth and South Node/Karma, but the other three, Fire, points in the Grand Sextile are North Node/Mission and Purpose, Eris/Revelation of Denial, and Lilith-Saturn-Ixion-Pholus/In Order to Achieve Self-Sovereignty the Most Important Thing is that we Become Responsible to our Unique and Probably Forbidden Genius.

The dwarf planet and Centaur Hylonome deals with Letting Go of Archetypes, and the asteroid Juno deals with the Edges of Consciousness.  It’s no Coincidence that they’re Conjunct as we speak.  Hylonome Initiated Juno in February 2017, starting a new 9-year Cycle at 8 Capricorn, “In a Sun-lit home domestic birds sing joyously.”  We’re in the middle of the Exposition (which actually peaked 28 July).  The Confidence-Builder occurs at the September Equinox.


April 16, 2017

 It’s also busy next week, as…

  • asteroid Karma Stationary 11pm PDT 17 April, 3 Virgo
  • Centaur Chariklo Stationary 12am PDT 18 April, 15 Capricorn
  • Pluto Stationary 6am PDT 20 April, 20 Capricorn

We can interpret this as if it were a Karma-Chariklo-Pluto Conjunction, since it is a Conjunction in Time if not in Location.  That would look something like the Transformation (Pluto) of the Impediments (Karma) to our Walking in Beauty (Chariklo).  

We can see Karma as the collections of Archetypes that keep us Acting from the Unconscious rather than from Conscious Choice.  Archetypes have us using the same script for all of our plays.  Karma is always a bit more subtle than this (at least till we see through it), but you can imagine screaming “Stella” while Making Love to Fred or Susie, while buying spaghetti at the local Tesco, and while a gendarme is asking to see your driver’s license.

Walking in Beauty is not about being gorgeous.  It’s about having perfect Self-Confidence in one’s ability and willingness to Respond appropriately to any situation that arises.  In some Cultures, Walking in Beauty may imply perfectly performing one’s Role in the Community, but that would be Truly Walking in Beauty only during Rituals where the Role was rigidly defined.  

True Walking in Beauty would combine Yintegrity with Self-Confidence.  That would include the Courage to be Vulnerable in situations of Uncertainty when one is Safe, the Flexibility to Stonewall when one is not Safe, and the Wisdom to tell the difference.  This coming week we can expect to get practice at this.

Pluto of course symbolizes a Change of Trance, Transformation, or Resurrection.  We can presume that Consciousness in Full would mean operating from Presence rather than Trance, but most things are actually Relative.

There may be a Threshold beyond which one is comfortable proclaiming oneself to be Enlightened or Always Present, but while the difference is subtle and obviously depends on the Self-Love of the observer, I haven’t found it difficult to tell the difference between “since I became Enlightened” as a statement of Ego, and as a statement of Fact.  In the latter case it’s seldom spoken.

And as always when we’re dealing with Unconscious Beliefs (ie, Karma, Archetypes), it’s important to remember that “I‘d rather Die than go through that again” isn’t a statement about that, it’s a statement about “I,” namely an Ego Death.  Getting to this point is actually a cause for Celebration, because it means that Letting Go is the only thing left between us and our scheduled Growth in Consciousness.

Remember that Karma is actually dead; it’s not that our Karma grasps us, it’s that we grasp our Karma.  Karma is actually the intersection of our Expectations and our Held Emotions.  When we’re Traumatized, acutely or traumatically, we Experience anything that reminds of that Trauma as a Repetition of the Trauma.  And it’s logical that we Resist this, and that we are loathe to re-Experience the horrible Emotions that accompanied the Trauma.

So our Held Emotions – the Experience of Trauma that we’re loathe to Feel again – are a wall between us and Presence.  But our Held Emotions are a Reaction to the Trauma, they are not the Trauma.  So we can actually practice tiptoeing up to the Edge of our Held Emotions and peeking in, especially if we have a Trusted helper standing by to remind us that we’re just practicing.  We can thus Teach ourself that the Emotions and the Trauma are not the same thing.

When our Karma is defended by “mere” Repetition rather than by Held Emotions, it’s a lot Easier to Let Go of our Karma, even as, without the Held Emotions to warn us, it’s more difficult to Notice that we’re entering a Trance.  Most of us “hired” parents to create Programming for us by forcing us to Repeat Patterns that they found acceptable, rather than allow us to practice our “Childish” Yintegrity, which being Experimental can be fairly “immature.”

If you know when you’re being Present (Grounded, Alert, Listening, Engaged but Neutral) and when you aren’t, this is a good week to watch for times when you exit Presence, and then Ask yourself What’s Going On.  How are you not Present?  Emotional?  Anxious?  Thinking?  Talking?  Drowsy?  Spaced out?  I don’t recommend you Analyze, but that you PIAVA Clarity.  Analysis can rework the Known, but only some form of PIAVAing can penetrate into the Unknown.

Full Moon Configuration I

April 9, 2017

Okay, after a long bout of techno-obsolescence we’ve achieved visuals again, so we can go back to involving the “right brain” too.  This is how we do what we do.  Let’s temporarily take the 10 April Full Moon chart apart, starting with the 20-26 Degree region that the Full Moon itself occupies…

Focusing for the moment on just the heavier lines, we can see three intertwining Configurations…

  • The Grand Cross or the red box with the red “X” in the middle
  • The Trine Bridge or the blue lines connecting two corners of the red box
  • A Finger of God, which is the green arrowhead, pointing to the same place in the upper right as the blue lines do

The Full Moon is the diagonal red line from upper left to lower right.  The Moon at upper left Conjoins Haumea (Rebirth), and the Sun at lower right Conjoins Uranus and Eris (Honesty about our Soul Self) – more of what we’ve been enduring for the last five years, the Urge to be Forthcoming with our True Self.

Red lines signify Energy (or of course Resistence to same – the Unconscious knows Dimension but not Direction, so Opposites are Equal in its Realm).  The diagonal from lower left to upper right is the Square to the Full Moon, Pluto (Transformation) on the lower left to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) on the upper right, which is labeled “oob” or Out of Bounds, which means Strong.

The resulting red Square containing a red “X” is called a Grand Cross, and it signifies Motivation.  It’s like we have four full-time jobs to do here (RebirthHonestyTransformationBeliefs) at the same time, so we’re constantly rushing from one to the other.  We don’t really get a lot of Choice, as this is happening in the Unconscious, so we can’t easily quit or shortchange any of the four, we just have to be an Efficient Multi-tasker.  That’s Motivation.

Basically, in order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed.  Our Unconscious Beliefs consist of our Karmic Habituations, our Childhood Programming (which is often a Mirror for our Karma), and the various prejudices we Learn from our Culture.  Archetypes they’re called – Constellations of Energy that are stronger than, and usually invisible to, our Ego.  

That is, they run our Show.  Our Archetypes Enchant or En-Trance us.  We’re Zombies under their Command.  When we refer to Pluto as symbolizing Transformation, what we really mean is Formation of a New Trance.  On the Global scale, this is the nature of a Zeitgeist.

The blue lines represent Grace, the long blue line “Dumb-Luck” Grace (a “Trine”) that happens to us, and the short blue line (a “Sextile”) “Working” Grace, where Grace flows but we have to make the first move to get it started, like a matching grant.  

You can see the “Trine Bridge” across the Full Moon, with Moon-Haumea (Rebirth) Trine Veritas-Chaos (The Truth of Limitlessness), which Sextiles Sun-Uranus-Eris (“I Gotta Be Me”).  A Trine Bridge shows us the “easy way out” of the potential hassles (too much Energy) of the Grand Cross; in this case we see that we can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations.

The long green lines are “Quincunxes,” linking Planets that are five Signs apart, or five/twelfths of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another (Quin = 5, Unx=12).  They symbolize Curiosity.  Curiosity is in bed with Love, since they both eschew Judgment, and Judgment is the Opposite of Love.  We don’t mean Curiosity as in “How does that work?”  We mean Curiosity as in “Wow, look at that!  Isn’t that Amazing!” – the kind of Awe and Wonder you see in the face of any Newborn.

Obviously, True Curiosity can be Scary, as many of us crave the false Security provided by Understanding.  The shortcoming of Understanding is that it’s Conditional; even when it’s accurate and relevant, it’s vitally dependent upon the current Zeitgeist.  If we’ve succeeded in Accepting, simultaneously, as many different Perspectives as we can get our hands on, we’ll be less “thrown” when a Zeitgeist Changes, but even in the best case it will be a major Adjustment.

The short green lines are “Unxes,” linking two planets that are one Sign apart, or one twelfth of the way around the Loop.  Unxes are about Pattern-Breaking.  Unxes and Quincunxes are members of the Twelfth Harmonic.  The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning, so a Quin-Unx is about Learning to Break Patterns.  How do we do that?  We drop into Curiosity.

When two long green lines converge – as they do on Veritas-Chaos, it’s called a “Finger of God” – that is, the Universe is saying “Pay Attention to this!” and “Don’t try to Understand it – It Is What It Is.”  and “Accept it as an Assumption, not as a Logical Conclusion.”  Veritas-Chaos is about the Truth of Limitlessness, so this is a request by the Universe that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All.

So this segment of the New Moon chart tells us that…

  • In order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed
  • We can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations
  • The Universe has requested that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All

Pretty straightforward, eh?

March IV – More Week 1

March 2, 2017

Other than what we’ve already discussed, the main events during the first week of March are an Exposition of Jupiter-Uranus at 6pm PST on 2 March, and the Station of Venus at 1am PST on 4 March.  

When an astroevent repeats three or more times, the first occurrence usually catches us off guard and introduces Puzzles we need to Resolve.  Since we often become Emotionally Involved with these Puzzles, we call this the “Can-Opener.”  By the last occurrence we’ve hopefully Resolved all the Issues that arose, so we refer to the last occurrence as the “Confidence-Builder.”  Intermediate occurrences we call “Expositions.”  They Expound on the Puzzles aroused by the Can-Opener.

In the case of this Jupiter-Uranus Opposition, the Can-Opener occurred on 27 December 2016.  It’s an extension of the Uranus-Eris and Uranus-Pluto work we’ve been doing for the last one and five years, respectively – namely, Removing our Masks and Exposing our Soul Self.  The Jupiter-Uranus Opposition Confidence-Builder will occur in September.

The Jupiter-Uranus Exposition means that we’re reviewing how well we’ve Removed our Masks, Expanded our Connection with our Soul Self, and Expanded our Comfort with Vulnerability to replace the Safety that our Masks previously provided.  We first Encountered this Energy in late December, so we may be Re-Experiencing whatever Issues we had at that time with our tendencies to camoflage our True Self.  

This is 21 Degrees of Aries-Libra, so it Triggers our Golden-Rectangle Recovering-our-Hidden-Genius Work that’s so closely linked with the current stage of our True-Self-Recovery Work.  Jupiter is backing across 24-14 Degrees of Libra, the territory it’s covered since mid-November.  This territory is about Rebooting our Relationship with Other and finding more avenues for Cooperation.

Of course Uranus is traveling with Eris (Revealing what was Denied), so that’s Lit Up as well, with crises of one degree or another around Jupiter-Eris having occurred in the neighborhoods of 18 January and 23 February.  And Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) is Squaring the Jupiter-to-Uranus/Eris Opposition, calling our Limiting Beliefs into Question.  Our Beliefs are Up for Evolution during all of the second half of 2016 and the first half of 2017.

Then there are our Values.  How do Values differ from Beliefs?  We have some sense of Right/Wrong around Values, while it’s more about Possible/Impossible when it comes to Beliefs.  When someone Acts contrary to our Values we think they’re really screwed up, if not downright Evil.  When someone Acts contrary to our Beliefs, we absolutely DO NOT understand how they could possibly vote for – no, I mean, how they could possibly see the World that way, whcn it’s SO CLEARLY NOT that way.  Aliens most likely, or at least Lizards.  

As our Beliefs Change, and they have been and are Changing, our Values have to Change along with them.  For instance if we now have a new Belief that Greater Abundance is now Possible for us, we’ll be reconsidering our Values around Sharing.  If we can newly Conceive of Greater Community, we’ll be reviewing our Values around Privacy and Intimacy.  If you’re starting to Take Responsibility for your own role in World Peace, your Values around Anger and how its Expressed may be shifting.

These things are undoubtedly already happening, as Venus has been covering its Shadow Period (the path of its Retrogradation) since the end of January.  The Venus Shadow spans 27 Pisces to 14 Aries, one of the most Powerful zones of the Zodiac, at it involves the Finishing Stages of the Last Emotional Dregs of our Finishing-Business Work around Ego-Attachment to Drama, and the First Half of the process of Rebirthing our Values Directly from Spirit.  

In January our Values sprung largely from our Emotions.  Chances are, to at least some degree, what we most Valued was Resistance to Emotional Situations that we had the least tolerance for – namely our Held Emotions.  Karmic Held Emotions wall us off from our Intuition.  By late May (when the whole Venus Shadow Period will have been traced thrice) more of our Values will derive from our High Heart instead.  One clear Lesson we’re being taught here, like it or not, is that Pain is a Teacher to be Embraced, not a Curse to be Avoided or Reverted.

The Venus Retrogradation triple-Dances with Juno (The Edges of the Unconscious) and Pallas (Boundaries).  The Can-Openers were 5 January for Pallas and 3 February for Juno.  The Exposition revisits will be 14 March for Juno and 2 April for Pallas.  

At Venus-Juno events we expect the hidden doors to the Unconscious to Open and reveal to us shortcomings with our Values that we hadn’t known before, Causing and Allowing us to bring our Values more into Balance with our True Self and the Planet.  

At Venus-Pallas astroevents we’re likely to Encounter places where our Boundaries don’t jive with our Values.  This will be particularly evident as our Appreciation that we’re All One increases and our Tolerance for Diversity is forced to increase.  Unconditional Love eschews Judgment but it doesn’t relax Boundaries.  When we’re fully bulletproof we can let our Boundaries take care of themselves, as lower Frequencies won’t be able to penetrate our Field.  But during the Transition there will be many places where our Distaste and Anger will no longer automatically set a Boundary for us, yet we may not be Physically safe.  We will need to be Conscious of this possibility.

In her book The Lover Within, Julie Henderson provides great wisdom about this.  For instance, on p.34-36…

“Even when danger presents itself unavoidably, most of us are not capable yet of being fully present, loving, relaxed, contained, and capable of right action.  But there are many other situations we are accustomed to finding unpleasant, annoying, angering, frightening, saddening, and so forth; in these situations we can experiment with expanding into life rather than contracting into ‘no.’  Having this choice basically means increasing the number of situations in which we are willing to feel in harmony and capable of appropriate, effective action, instead of freezing or exploding.”

“When you make your energy body dense, it protects you by reducing the influence of other systems ‘outside.’  For example, it slows down the impact of other people’s feelings as they come at you  If you make your energy dense, it also happens often that people tend to experience you as powerful and charismatic (unless, of course, their field is denser and more flexibly contained than yours).

“Diffusing your field sensitizes you and strengthens your awareness of ‘external’ events.  Diffusing your field also increases empathy – that is, feeling other people’s feelings as your own.  If you don’t know that what you’re feeling belongs to someone else, it can be quite confusing and upsetting.  People sometimes diffuse their fields specifically in order to figure out what other people are feeling, especially when they aren’t permitted to ask…

“Since we can never be 100% sure that our guesses are right, this diffusion in order to ‘psych out’ other people can also lead to anxiety and paranoia.  But when you are with people you like and trust, your choice to diffuse your field and merge with them, to become one energetically, creates a whole range of pleasurable feelings, from comfort to bliss to ecstasy…

“Despite the pleasure of diffusion, it isn’t a great habit to have.  Like habitual contraction, habitual diffusion (especially an habitual expanded diffusion) makes some things in life difficult – like feeling separate from other people, like knowing what you feel and what you want, like saying no, asserting an opinion, asking for a raise.  The habit us unfortunate in everyday life; to be able to do it is wonderful.  People who are unable to diffuse and merge have other problems, like feeling so separate they can’t imagine what love is.”



Levels and Perspectives

February 20, 2017

I don’t think we’ve emphasized this Perspective recently, but it’s fundamental, so worth repeating.  This culture commonly Perceives Mentality, Emotionality, Spirituality, and Physicality as different Levels or Departments of Experience.  We don’t mean to imply that these are the only Departments – at the very least we need to add Energy, for instance.

Simply put, these are not different Levels or Departments.  They’re different Perspectives on our Unitary Experience of being in a Physical Body.

Imagine that you’re standing on a Ridge, waving at the camera.  You’ll look different…

  • to an observer a few feet in front of you
  • to an an observer several yards behind you
  • to an observer at the top of the Peak
  • to an observer falling off the Ridge while stepping back a few feet so they can capture your profile

Experience is One Unified Thing.  It’s only a mental game to try to reduce it into separate “components.”  Body, Spirit, Emotion, Mind, and Energy are just different snapshots of the same One Thing, seen from different angles.

We quoted Stephen Levine recently, where he was reading the Emotional state of his Inner Child by Attending to the Physical Sensations in his Body.  You’ve undoubtedly heard Stories about Physical-Healing “Miracles” perpetrated through the Spiritual or Dietary Perspectives – “Spontaneous Remissions” as the Scienteriffic types have to call it to preserve their precious Reductive Worldview and prevent Cognitive Dissonance.  Dr. Kim ( talks about the crossover between Perspectives (fka Levels) all the time.  

Donna Eden and David Feinstein ( have been teaching and writing about this for decades.  If you haven’t had experiences where you’ve, just as a for-instance, resolved Emotional Overwhelm by Tapping on Energy Meridians on the Body, you haven’t “Tried It on Everything” ( yet.

Here’s an excerpt from a Channeling where Daniel Scranton talks about this…

“You then move past the emotional awakening and into the energetic awakening.  The energetic awakening is often felt as strange occurrences in your bodies.  It is also something that you sense.  It is awakening to your empathic nature.  It is an awakening of the consciousness that you are and that you use to navigate through this reality.

“And then you have your physical awakening, which can be the most troubling of all the awakenings, because you have been taught that when this, that or the other thing happens to your physical body, it means you are on a gradual decline.  It may mean that you need surgery or pills to cure it.  This is what you have been told, but it is not the truth.  It is not a truth that you need to accept.

“So when you have your ascension symptoms in your physical body, that is a test of your faith.  It’s not a test that you have to pass, but rather, it’s an opportunity for you to take all that you have learned in your previous awakenings and apply it to your experience of your physical body.  And when you do this, you can move through the physical awakening without needing to subject yourselves to some of what the health care professionals would have you subject yourselves to.

“You always have the option of working energetically, emotionally, and with your thoughts to work through the physical experiences that you have of awakening.  If you see them as experiences and as sensations, rather than as symptoms of a larger problem, you will be well on your way to releasing them and to being fully in your bodies, embracing your bodies, and navigating with your bodies to the fifth dimension.”

January Week 3 End – Big Doin’s

January 19, 2017

Whew, made it through the Ixion-Juno Initiation last night, but not without Tapping and Thetaing and Poor-Sweethearting for most of the night.  Our next Big Event is a Station of dwarf planet Haumea, 4am PST 22 January.  Haumea is Pele’s daughter, symbolizing Rebirth – by Fire!  It’s been within one Degree of Sensitivity to this Station since early November, so it’s a big part of what we’ve been Experiencing, as we’ve been trying to get as many of our Unconscious Masters (Archetypes, Karma, and Unfinished Business, O My) wrestled to the Ground so we can get Reborn as Cleanly as possible.

Now that “everything else” Big has gone under the bridge, the Rebirth part takes Center Stage.  Well, almost.  The Reality Show is still about

Bringing our Unconscious Fears Up Into Our Awareness in Order to Reclaim our Self-Sovereignty

for another week or so.  So this Rebirth is kind of a Mid-term in some ways.

By 1 February we’re firmly engaged in Rebuilding a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime that’s based on Self-Love.

So a Laser Focus on Noticing any Self-Judgment for the next 7-10 days will pay big dividends.

Self-Judgment includes any Values you have that are Moral, or based on Either/Ors.  As Alan Watts informed us,

It’s Harder to Let Go of Good Karma than it is to Let Go of Bad Karma.

And we need to jettison both if we’re going to be able to approximate Self-Love.

Our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.  But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

If we betray our own Standards of Behavior, or fail to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect, we Make Amends and move on.  If we’re in the Habit of indulging Guilt or Remorse or the like (or having a big Reaction when others fail to treat us with Respect, which is just a Mirror for our own Lack of Self-Love), then we need to Change that Habit to Tapping it Out asap so we can get on with the Critically Important Work we’re doing Rebirthing the Planet one Psyche at a time (our own).  What was that Meditation threshold that squelched Crime?  One Percent of the Neighbors Meditating?

There’s a Catch here.  Two days after Haumea’s Station, asteroid Hopi Stations.  Hopi is about Respect for all Things.  Those Sentient Beings we have to Respect?  They don’t just include folks who look like you (regardless of Color).  They include Critters and Plants and Rocks and Dirt and Planets and Stars and anything that your mind is able to Separate from the Background Noise and assign a word to.  Oh, and the Background Noise is Sentient too, especially the Background Noise.  That’s the Unconscious, Master over most of our Behavior, thought, Emotion, and even our Physiology.

So we can say that again now, with the context more clear: It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.

But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.  How will we every Learn to Love our Pathological Genius otherwise?

Saturn, The Most Important Thing, is only three weeks and less than two Degrees away from being Initiated by Ixion, our Forbidden Genius.  

Meanwhile, the Great Amplifier Jupiter is only two weeks and a third of a Degree shy of its Station, and less than two Degrees from Haumea.  In other words this isn’t any ordinary Molt of our Identity exoskeleton (Haumea is Stationary twice a year after all), but a Big Rebirth.  And you might notice that Sedna, our Emissary of Fear as a Gift Reminder to Embrace ourself, is Stationary along with Jupiter.

So we have a Choice here.  We can be Reborn into Big Fear, or we can be Reborn into Big Love.  We Choose the latter by hunting down our Unconscious Fear with a Searching and Fearless Inventory, then Loving our Fear into Submission.

It’s a safe bet that most or all of our Judgments have their roots embedded deep in Fear.  So if you aren’t Scared this week and next, start Examining your Judgments.  What Unconscious Fears stand behind those?  That includes our “positive” Moral Judgments – “I’m Good because I…” – what Fears stand behind those?  What would happen if you chose Yintegrity  or Self-Trust instead of “Good”?

This is what we took Birth for, and why the Planet is so overpopulated with Beings wanting in on the Action.

In case you’ve lost the bigger plot, Jupiter-Haumea is one corner of the Forbidden-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle that encloses our Sedna-Lilith Recovering-Self-Sovereignty-by-Embracing-our-Fear Yin Gate, which is about to morph into a Building-a-New-Lifetime-Based-on-Self-Love Yin Gate.  And of course the huge Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012, is another corner of the Golden Rectangle.

January, Week 3, Start 2A

January 16, 2017

A regular reader writes…

“I have a thought that I’ve had many times.  Is thought random, or pre-planned?  And, when we experience a ‘negative’ thought, why does no one question the origin?  Are there etheric Lizards hurling thoughtforms into our awareness?  The Gnostics said so, that the seed of human error was ‘the mind parasite’ or the ‘foreign installation’ that Don Juan described to Carlos Castenada.  

This is also Buddhism’s biggest oversight (in my humble opinion)…it seeks to end suffering via various concepts, disciplines of the mind, and actions, but never asks about the origin or causes of the “why” of the human condition.  It ignores the deeper mystery in other words.”

Good points all, though I see the World differently.

I certainly agree that the mind is a (useful) parasite, but I don’t think we need to project our Xenophobia on it and make it foreign.  I believe we need to “own” its machinations as we need to “own” all of our Projections and Introjections.  

I’d say that not only are there the equivalent of etheric Lizards hurling all manner of thoughtforms at us, but there are also etheric Amphibians hurling all manner of Emotions at us, all of which are impersonal.  We glom onto and Personalize the ones that resonate with our Unfinished Business.  However, I’d regard all these images as metaphors.  I don’t believe anything coming out of our minds or mouths is ever anything but metaphor.  

There are so many different layers to, and (legitimate) Perspectives on, the Onion of “Reality” that I believe the Onion itself to be ineffable.  Many consider it Illusion.  I don’t usually think directly in those terms (it’s inconvenient to think of my desk as 99.999…% “empty” space), but I do believe that it’s Energy that’s “Real,” and Matter that’s insubstantial, held together by mass hypnosis and Emotional Energy.  Thought and Emotion are “Real” forms of Energy.

When asked why we don’t all see Psychic Energy, my first teacher relayed the metaphor that as children learning colors, we’d point at our mother’s friend’s Energy Body and say “Red!”  Mom would reply, “No honey, that’s a Blue dress.”  We don’t actually need etheric Lizards if we need to attribute Cause.

As for Buddhism, I’m quite sure that the omission of Why is purposive.  Why is the occupation of Monkey Mind, while Buddhism strives for Beginner’s Mind or “Don’t Know,” which is similar to the state of Awe and Wonder that I often refer to as Perpetual Curiosity.  Prior to making Conclusions, Curiosity like Unconditional Love eschews Judgment, so I consider it “next to Godliness.”  Metaphors are just word pictures; Conclusions, Certainties, Dogmas, and Either/Ors are Judgments.  

Now, I hope everyone notices that this is an Either/Or Judgment.  A better alternative would be…

“When you see someone making a choice that you would not make for yourself, let it go.  Show that person love and compassion, but do not feel the need to correct him or her.  Instead, be the leader that you are and the wayshower that you always intended to be by choosing for yourself the path of love, compassion, and unity.”  —∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ 

But it’s a Discernment I use to differentiate Spirituality from Politics – Spirituality is Both/And; Either/Or is Politics.  I find that this particular Either/Or Judgment is a very useful Heuristic as a bs meter.  A Heuristic is a methodology “that solves a problem quickly but is not certain to arrive at an optimal solution.”

As Michael Roads says, “It Is What It Is.”  Not more nor less.  The rest is just mindstuff.  I often refer to Cause and Effect as The Great God Causan Defect.  It’s a challenge to think in terms other than Cause and Effect.  A heresy even!  It’s merely our Patriarchal Programming, mass hypnosis.  See if you can go a day – or ten minutes – without seeing the World through the Glass Darkly of Cause and Effect.

Jung for one postulated an alternative sort of Relationship between Observations which describes many aspects of “Reality” far better than Causan Defect (Jung and Pauli, The Interpretation of Nature and the Psyche).  We see what we Expect to see.  Seeing the World without Expectations would be hugely Confusing – that is, Growthful!  But not easy.

And there’s no sense in which Buddhism “ignores the deeper mystery,” quite the contrary.  Buddhism believes that the Mystery lies not in the mind but in the Heart.  It sees the mind as Destroyer of Mystery.  The Matriarchy agreed.

January, Week 1, Update 2

January 4, 2017

We’ve amended the December beginnings of our “Week” with a few Angles previously omitted, and we’ve gotten ourselves up to date through 7 January, in revising…

Tomorrow we’ll tackle the 8 January Mercury Station, the 9 January Eris Station, and the many other exhausting Dramas that fill January.

I’m grateful that when I catch myself sinking into vague or acute Physical or Emotional Discomfort and trying to “figure out what’s wrong,” reminding myself that “This is about Letting Go,” and that it’s what’s right, shifts the Energy almost immediately.  Their are plenty of Heavies yet to come.

January, Week 1

January 2, 2017

January is very busy.  There are three main threads, along with a number of more isolated Energies, so we’ll get to practice being Conscious of our Multidimensional Selves as we Juggle the threads.  I’ll color-code the three Energies, and catalog the first week or so…

The First Energy is our old Friend, Recovering our Abandoned Genius and Continuing to Remove our Masks.  This is a big collection of planets in a large number of different Signs, in 20-26 Degrees.  It’s an excellent time to become Intimate with the elements in your natal chart in these Degrees, as this will indicate your Attitudes that are under major Adjustment.  This isn’t new; we’ve been working it with since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012.  If it’s still giving you fits, the elements from your natal chart will probably give you major clues to help you Let Go of your remaining Constraints to Knowing, Being, and Expressing your True Self.

This Energy is the Golden Rectangle composed of the Opposition from Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis to dwarf planet Chaos, T-Squared by Chiron, and the Opposition from Jupiter-Haumea to Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne, with the Oppositions Trine and Sextile to one another.  Asteroids Eurydike and Moira complete the Grand Sextile.  The 12 January Full Moon makes a Grand Cross with the Opposition from Jupiter-Haumea to Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne.  The fireworks explode in early January when a Grand Quintile connects the Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis with the Venus-Pallas-Nessus-OR10 Stellium of the Second Energy, along with Hopi, Vesta, and the Moon.

This is also our Mystery School, where we’re Learning to Accept Paradox as a basic principle of Non-Dual Reality, particularly as it applies to the Paradoxical Relationship between our Self-Sovereignty and our Acceptance of the Truth of what we Fear.  In February this becomes the Acceptance of the Paradoxical Relationship between our Acceptance of the Truth of what we Fear and our Assembly of a New Lifetime/Ego based on Self-Love.

This is the Yin Gate formed by the Opposition between Lilith and Sedna-Aletheia, which Opposition splits the Golden Rectangle on its long dimension.  In February the asteroids Sappho and Klotho Conjoin Opposite Sedna-Aletheia, as Lilith moves on.

We’ve a fair amount of recent Experience with the Second Energy, too.  It’s about Letting Go of the Impact of our Abuse Traumas.  Remember that Traumas can be Acute (specific Incidents) or Chronic (slow-motion, more or less continuous, and more easily dismissed as “normal”), and they can be ours or someone else’s – such as your Great Grandmother’s, who went to her grave without ever talking about her Abuse Traumas, but they’re embedded in your Epigenetics (the Reprogrammable portions of your Genetics).  Her never discussing them with anyone makes them very difficult to Identify and Shed.  This Energy is at 3-4 Degrees, mostly of Pisces, though a few other Signs collaborate.  Again, it will trigger your natal Configurations at 3-4 Degrees.

This Energy is mostly the Venus-Pallas-Nessus-OR10 Stellium, which is at the focus of a Finger of God across the Sextile between Vesta and Stationary Makemake. 

We’ve also been dealing with the Third Energy for a while, off and on.  You’ll recognize it as The Oaths We Made to Protect Ourself and How They Morphed into Limiting Beliefs and Held Emotions – and Hidden Skills.  The Thinning of the Veil is part of this process.  This Energy is mostly at 7-10 Degrees, of Pisces and Virgo.

This is the Stellium formed by Venus, Mars, Pallas, Neptune, and the South Node, Opposed by dwarf planet Orcus (and of course the North Node).

If you’d like short keywords or phrases so you can easily remember which Energy is which, try Yintegrity/Abandoned Genius, Abuse/Privilege, and Oath-Breaking/Limiting Beliefs.

Since we care more about Interpretation than Prediction, we’re including a few related prior astroevents.  What follows is an outline.  I’ll be adding commentary to it as the week goes on, so check back every day or two.  Note that, except for the “Moon over” and “Moon Opposite” events, these Energies are not solitary events; most of them will begin to be Felt a day to a week prior to the date indicated, sometimes longer.  And of course many of them Initiate Cycles that may be Experienced for months or years or decades to come; remember that the Energy of a Cycle is particularly strong at it’s Initiation

27 December:
>>> Saturn Initiates Nemesis (The Most Important Thing Is Letting Go of Our Olde Ego Structures – Our Beliefs about Who We Are), 1pm PST 27/12, Sagittarius 21 (Using Our Imagination to Transcend Mundane Physical and Emotional “Realities”); We need to stay in Gratitude about how our Olde Ego Structures have kept us Alive so far, and got us to where we are.  But they’re now Obsolete, and will soon be Ripped Away, so we’re much better off being Proactive about Letting them Go Lovingly and Gently, with Gratitude.  This is the Initiation of a Cycle that lasts more than five years (64 months).
>>> Nemesis Opposes Chaos, 6pm PST 27/12, Sagittarius 22; Another “minor” peak in the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius, this one likely to Illuminate our Attachment to our Limiting Beliefs.

28 December:
>>> Saturn Squares Chiron, 4pm 28/12, Sagittarius-Pisces 22; One of four Squares between Juno-Nemesis-Saturn-Ixion and Chiron, part of the Chiron T-Square across the Opposition between Juno-Nemesis-Saturn-Ixion and dwarf planet Chaos.  We spoke at length about these processes in Like John Said .
>>> Saturn Oppposes Chaos, 11pm PST 28/12, Sagittarius-Gemini 22; more of the same.

29 December:
>>> Chiron Squares Chaos, 11am, Pisces-Sagittarius 22; yet more.  

30 December:
>>> Chariklo Initiates Sun (Walking in Beauty) Capricorn 9 (Connecting to Nature and God through our Emotions); We bottled up some of our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulousness when we were Reacting and Responding as best we could to our Abuse Traumas.  Consciousness of what we bottled up will help us Let it Back Out Safely.  Beginning a one-year Cycle.

1 January 2017:
>>> Lilith Opposes Sedna, 9pm PST 1/1, Scorpio-Taurus 26; This is the apex of our current Mystery School around the Paradox about how Self-Knowledge about Fear Interacts with Self-Sovereignty.  In particular you may be dealing with Fear.   Try a “You poor Sweetheart…” on it.  The School goes on through most of January, then is replaced by a related Mystery School at the end of the month.  See also 6 January.
>>> Sedna-Aletheia are the focus of a Quintile Yod from Jupiter and Mercury; This represents an Expansion of what we Know about our Fears. 

>>> Neptune Initiates Mars (Integration of Spirit and Form) Pisces 10 (Flying Blind); This Initiates a two-year Cycle where we Learn to Trust that Spirit and Form are in fact already, always, Integrated; they’re only Separate in the eyes of the Dualistic Mind.  The Implications of this Separation are immense – on our physical and mental health for instance, when we Believe that something is “wrong.”  It’s not wrong, it’s Information about what’s Out of Balance, and what’s Out of Balance is often only our Perception.
If we Trust that Spirit and Form are always already Integrated in spite of our thoughts about and Resistance to the issue, aren’t we already “Ascended”? We’re just continuing to Manifest Third-Dementia Duality because that’s what we Believe is “Real.”  We may be able to PIAVA our way out of Duality, since we know that PIAVA (as long as we can Change the Subject) can Transcend the mind.  Another Paradox from our Mystery School, as well as a very Important Teaching about Manifestation.   By being co-incident in Linear Time, after all, these three Energies become three Perspectives on the same Heuristic.

1-2 January:
>>>Moon over Venus-Pallas-OR10-Nessus, 7pm PST 1/1 to noon 2/1, Pisces 3-4; We are likely to Experience this as Heavy Emotion arising from the toxic cyst formed by our historical Abuse Traumas, whether Consciously or not (I’ve been Feeling it as a low-level nonspecific Lackawanna, for instance).  However, remember that the “real” meaning of the Moon is Instinct – these are Split-Off Contents in the Unconscious that crave our Loving Embrace – Make It So.

>>> Makemake (Manifestation) Stationary Retrograde Libra 4 (Youth in Spiritual Communion around a Campfire); The other five Waves are already here, patiently Manifesting their Hearts’ Desires through Spirit rather than through Form.  We join their Effort by Letting Go of our Conscious, Semi-Conscious, and Unconscious Beliefs that it is Reality that’s Corrupt, rather than the Duality of the mind that’s Corrupt.  By Embracing the Reality of our Self-Sabotage and “Loving it to Death,” we allow ourself to Focus our Clear Intention on our own Hearts’ Desires. 

2-3 January:
>>> Moon over South Node-Neptune-Mars, 9am PST 2/1 to 3am 3/1, Pisces 7-10; Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth; avoid trying to “figure it out” and instead just pretend that you’re stoned.  The Veil is weak here; if you can avoid Indulging your Bummers, you may be able to see through into Pure Intention and Uncluttered Manifestation.  Look to see whether this is in Harmony with Nature or in Conflict with Her.
>>> Moon over Chiron, 5pm PST 3/1 ±3 hours, Pisces 22; Chiron (Despair and Miracle) is working its way into being the focus of a T-Square (Challenge) across the Opposition between Jupiter-Haumea (Expanded Rebirth) and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (in a word, our Yintegrity).  Stay very Mindful of using your “You poor Sweetheart…”s whenever your Mood slips into any sort of Discomfort.

5 January:  A very busy day…
>>> Pallas Initiates Venus (Setting Important Boundaries Lovingly but Unambiguously), 5am PST 5/1, Pisces 3 (Obsolescence); While like all astroindications this could go either way (we’re looking at the Unconscious after all, where Duality doesn’t exist), but given the general End-of-Tolerance-for-Abuse climate we’re in, we’re going to read this as the Initiation of a 17-month Cycle where we Learn that we no longer need to Abandon ourself when Attacked.  If you’re Attached to the Patriarchy’s Power-Over mores, you’ll be ahead to proactively enroll in a sexual harassment class.
>>> OR10 Initiates Venus (Clues to which of our Values are truly our Heart’s Truth, and which are Programming or Karma), 2pm PST, Pisces 3 (Obsolescence); A one-year Cycle starts, where we Discover and Transform old Values that were never Truly Ours and Heart-based, but Programmed by our Forebears or Culture or Karma.  Any Value based on Judgment is a candidate, Discerning Preference from Judgment; liking Peach Pie more than Apple Pie is a Preference, Hating Apples is a Judgment.  Morals are usually Either/Or, thus excellent suspects for Programming.

>>> Moon over Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne and Opposite Jupiter, 4pm PST 5/1 to 6a 6/1, Aries 21-24; Jupiter is increasingly amping up our mandate to Let Go of our remaining Masks.  You can interpret Lunar Emotionality a number of ways, but the most productive way is as an Intuition.  What comes up here for you?  Here at the dawn of these brand new Venus-Pallas and Venus-Nessus Cycles, you may want to see if any unpleasant Feelings diminish when you resolve to keep firmer Boundaries, or, if you’re uncertain you can pull that off, PIAVA to Learn to set firmer Boundaries Charmingly, Forcefully, and Consistently.  It might be a good time to do a Theta Healing (see ) on this, and carefully work through any Resistance or Hesitation you encounter in the Show Me phase.
>>> Nessus Initiates Venus (Surrendering to Abuse was probably a Survival mechanism for most of us, rather than a Heart-based Value, though we don’t mean to Judge True Masochists, if there is such a thing; on the other hand, the Privilege to Abuse is definitely a Patriarchal Value – but is it Heart-based, or Programmed?), 9PM PST 5/1, Pisces 4 (Heavy Cross-Traffic at Seashore Resorts); This Initiates an only-13-month Cycle, but it’s a big one, considering the context – see at least January 8 and today’s first entry.
Whatever Abuse we Allow ourselves to Receive, Pay Close Attention.  What’s our Motivation?  Is it really Masochism, or Fear of our own Power, Fear of reprisal, Unworthiness, Lack of Self-Love, or ???  If the Abuse is minor, or we have little Hesitation to set a Boundary, it may be useful to Allow the Abuse so we can study Why we were tempted to Allow it.  This is huge not just for us as Evolving Individuals, but also huge for the Human Collective and the Planet.  This includes being Abused by For-Profit Medicine.
 Abuse we Allow ourself to Perpetrate against another, Pay close Attention as well.  Is this type of Abuse legal?  Does your Victim object?  Do you Believe they’re secretly pleased?  Is your Motivation the sense of Safety or Superiority you get from knowing you can Power-Over someone, or Believing you have the Right to do so?  Something you’d brag about to your Friends?  Is it to Satisfy some Desire of yours?  Is it an Addiction?  (Some define Addiction as continuing to do something after you “get in trouble” for it – but we’d have to exclude “getting in trouble” that’s an Act of Abrogating your Self-Sovereignty, such as “getting in trouble” with your Abuser.)  Do you Feel good about it?  Do you plan to keep doing it whenever you can?  If not, do you have a Plan for Changing your Behavior?

6 January: Another very busy day…
>>> Juno
 Opposes Chaos, 12am PST 6/1, Sagittarius-Gemini 21; Juno’s Dancing with Saturn and Ixion Opposing Chaos.  Juno represents the Edges of Consciousness, so we should be due for some Illumination here if we’re Open to Receiving it.
>>> Lilith Opposes Aletheia, 4am PST 6/1, Scorpio-Taurus 26; This is the secondary apex of our current Mystery School around the Paradox about how Self-Knowledge about Fear Interacts with Self-Sovereignty.  This apex is more about Truth per se than Fear itself.  Another good place for a Theta Healing where you work through the Resistance (see “>>> Moon over Uranus et al, 4am PST 5/1…”); the more you’re in Truth and in Consciousness about your Fears, the less they’ll rule your Life and Limit your Experience of it, no matter how you React or Respond to them.  The School goes on through most of January, then is replaced by a related Mystery School at the end of the month.  See also 1 January (“>>> Lilith Opposes Sedna, 9pm PST 1/1…”).

>>> OR10 Initiates Pallas (Likely to be lots of Vignettes – spontaneous Dramatic Memories – about times when you Gave Away your Power or Powered-Over others or didn’t intervene when you witnessed Abuse
), 11am PST, Pisces 3 (Obsolescence); The start of a four-year (50-month) Cycle where our Psyche is likely to show us scenarios from our Life where Boundaries different from those we had at the time would work better.  As you’re observing the show, be careful to distinguish Responsibility from Blame; Blame looks for Past Cause, while Responsibility looks for ways to improve Future Outcomes.  It’s probably better though to Let Go and let these Vignettes “Roll Off our Back,” rather than trying to “Figure them Out.”  The Letting Go will Create Wisdom, which will serve us much better, rather than Knowledge.  
>>> Ixion Initiates Nemesis (Embracing the probably-Chronic Traumas that Isolated our Abandoned Genius), noon PST, Sagittarius 25 (Play despite apparent handicaps); This is the Beginning of an almost-six-year (71 months) Cycle where we Learn about our Abandoned Genius and loosen our Attachment to their Abandonment.  Nemesis was the Goddess assigned the task of punishing folks who offended the Gods with their Hubris.  She’s an excellent stand-in for Ego Death.  We have elaborate Ego Structures built up to keep our Abandoned Genius Suppressed.  You could think of those Structures as sort of like the Emperor’s Wall on the Mexican border or your local Sewage Treatment plant – those Energies must be controlled and contained at any cost!
Deconstructing this Wall to let our Rejected Self back in could be Painful.  You may be ahead to make a list of all epithets and labels that seem negative to you.  Have you ever told a friend or acquaintance “I’m not one of 
those people!”?  What offends you in other people?  What characteristic or behavior would be a reason to reject someone?  What’s the most odious or repugnant thing someone could do?  What do you hate most in other people?  What would you never do?  You might want to sit with some of these vile things and see if you can find some Compassion for them.

7 January:
>>> Juno Squares Chiron, 5am PST 7/1, Sagittarius-Pisces 22; One of four Squares between Juno-Nemesis-Saturn-Ixion and Chiron, part of the ongoing T-Square with dwarf planet Chaos; see Like John Saidlink above (28 December).  This one may be painful, as the Edge of your Consciousness (and of your Ego) are torn open if you’re in Resistance.  If you Let Go of your Resistance (“You poor Sweetheart, this feels horrible, doesn’t it.”) it will help a lot.
>>> Grand Quintile linking Juno-Nemesis-Saturn-Ixion with OR10-Nessus-Pallas-Venus-South Node, Vesta, Hopi, and the Moon, 1-7pm PST; This now gets interesting.  The Quintile mean that this is about Learning; the Grand part means that it’s about Wisdom as much as Knowledge, as it Spans the Whole.  We will be Learning how…
The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to Open up to Greater Consciousness (Juno), Let Go of our Olde Identity (Nemesis), and Accept our Abandoned Genius (Ixion)…
Relates to…
Our Karmic Dance (South Node) between our Boundaries (Pallas), our Values (Venus), and Memories (OR10) of our Abuse (Nessus).
Them’s Big Doin’s.
The other players in the Grand (Integrating) Quintile (Learning) are…
Our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta), Respect for All Things (Hopi). and our Authenticity (Moon)…
Hopi tells us that there’s no room here for Blame (“You poor Sweetheart, Blame is so much easier, isn’t it.”), we have to Be Responsible TO All of the many Parts of Ourself that are Dancing here.  Letting Go of our old notion that we were “responsible for” (ie, “it was our own fault”).  Yes, we were Powerless to stop it, and yes, they Abused their Power, but the time for Keening about our Loss is long past.
To Make Space in our Bodies for the New Energies moving onto the Planet, we need to Accept that It Was What It Was.  This may take a large number of “You poor Sweetheart…”s, about whatever Emotions arise.  Tapping as well, any number of times.  Measure your before-and-after Distress (one to ten), and let the Topic evolve.  Take as long as you need; it’s The Most Important Thing you’re Doing, and probably The Most Important Thing you’ll ever Do, perhaps even The Thing You Came Here To Do.  Your Work here will help move the Planet out of the Patriarchy.
